** seems to me that the Prodigal Son was setting up a kind of permanent parole-like system, or something along those lines, as the condition for his return home ("Father, I have sinned before heaven and before you, and am no longer worthy to be called your son. Let me be one of your hired servants...").

But the father in the story was so uninterested in that sort of arrangement, he didn't even let the son finish presenting his proposition, but instead, immediately restored him to full sonship in his presence.
